What It's Like to Work Here

A career with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago gives you a role in a vital and complex component of the housing finance industry. You’ll be part of an organization that contributes to the success of community lenders, helps people of all income levels attain quality housing and homeownership, and fosters strong and vibrant communities. 

At the FHLBank Chicago, you’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • Get involved! Join an employee resource group, the Bank’s softball team, or the book club
  • Give back to our local community through volunteer events outside the Bank—from baking cookies for families at a Ronald McDonald House, to participating in a Habitat for Humanity build, to helping spruce up a Chicago neighborhood with NeighborWorks
  • Enjoy the business-casual dress (including jeans), work-from-home opportunities, and generous tuition-reimbursement programs available to our employees

Here are just a few reasons why the FHLBank Chicago is a great place to work:
